F1 » Was Button an intended kidnap victim in Brazil..?


As he reflects on the 'terrifying' ordeal in which he was faced with up to six gun-wielding assailants in Brazil at the weekend, Jenson Button admits he hopes he wasn't a deliberate target - but his father John is not so sure...

How stupid can these guys get? What did a multi-millionaire F1 World Champion (now ex-champ) expect in Sao Paulo? Also I must add weight to Bernie's comments - the McLaren is a top dog car, just that they have drivers (in Hamilton too) that cant pull their own socks off instead of the most stupid excuses, 'I have no grip' or 'my tyres are not working' etc. Bernie was right, Button is too soft.

This is all Bullocks, they were after his girlfriend not him!
And those people who think that the b-class armored car would be slow, uh hello, it has an f-duct!
and there is no way Daniel Toni would run away with the championship, the minute he would try to ram alonso his car would fall appart. Ask a number of drivers who have hit ferraris this year, Barrichello in Spa comes to mind.
In all seriousness, the sad part is this is the top story instead of the battle for the championship.

John, Jenson is still F1 champ until there is a new champ.

And Adolph, I agree completely, I've yet to see an actual story about what happened to the Sauber team other than it just being mentioned in passing in the Jenson stories.
